Hi, Nathan. I wondered if you ever found the book on the Pattens of NH?
I am decended from Elizabeth Patten Simpson. She lived in Nottingham with her husband, Andrew Simpson, who was an UlsterScot.Andrew bought land with Robert Patten whom I believe to be Elizabeth's brother.An article in an old NH paper had quite an article about them.She was killed by Indians and buried in the town square.
If you think this could possibly be your line as well, I would love to exchange info with you.
